The impact of School Sport Partnerships on pupil behaviour

E-mail Print

The School Sport Partnership (SSP) programme (previously the School Sport Coordinator Programme) is central to the Government’s Physical Education, School Sport and Club Links national strategy. Partnerships are families of schools that receive additional funding, around £270k per year, to enhance and increase sports opportunities for all children and young people. Since 2006 the vast majority of schools, including many from the independent sector, have become part of this programme.

The key policy outcomes are:

Increased participation amongst school age children, in particular girls and young women, black and ethnic minorities, disabled young people, and young people living in areas of socio-economic disadvantage Improved standards of performance by children across a range of sports

    Improved motivation, attitude and selfesteem, resulting in increased personal and social development in all aspects of school life

Increased numbers of qualified and active coaches, leaders and officials in all schools and local sports clubs/facilities
